After an hourslong "shelter-in-place" advisory ended in Watertown, Mass., a man walked into his yard Friday to find blood on the tarp covering his boat.
At a press conference Friday night, Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis gave this and other details that led law enforcement to take the second suspect of the Boston Marathon bombings into custody.
When the Watertown resident saw the blood, Davis said, he then looked under the tarp and saw a man covered with blood. He retreated and called the police.
